Kanye West Announces New Album YANDHI As A Possible Sequel To Yeezus
Coming in ELEVEN days?!
Kanye West has returned to instagram to announce a surprise brand-new album YANDHI, merely 4 months after he released his last solo project Ye.
The album's announcement comes just 4 months after his release of both his solo project Ye and his Kid Cudi collab album Kids See Ghosts, and is due for a September release.

The new announcements come from Kanye's renewed interested in using Instagram - having already posted 76 photos since he started using the social media platform again only 6 days ago.
The post shows an imessage conversation which holds the date "9 29 18", ie the 29th of September 2018 - which is only eleven days away. You can check out the album cover for the project with what we assume (HOPE) is the release date in his post below.
The album name YANDHI plays on the name Gandhi in the same fashion that Yeezus played on Jesus. Will it form as a direct follow-up or sequel of sorts? Potentially so, but as of yet we have no more details.
Where's the link? Well despite the very, very questionable Trump allegiance controversy, Kanye has been preaching a sort of revolution-through-kindness approach to politics which, we suppose, he's comparing to Gandhi's nonviolent revolution in India.
Regardless - comparing yourself to Gandhi seems like a rather Kanye thing to do, so we're not too surprised. Knowing Kanye, however, last minute album name changes are always on the table, so we wouldn't get overly attached until the project is released - HOPEFULLY on the 29th.
Furthermore, another image posted to his Instagram suggests that he will debut the album on the first episode of the new season of Saturday Night Live, a season premiere which will also feature Adam Driver as a guest.
It looks like it's coming sooner than expected, but while we wait... is Drake going to be appearing on Korean reality TV?
